Some of the Thames walkers from 2014

Vasculitis UK works with its members to raise awareness about Vasculitis all year round. However in May we ask them to make that special effort to tell someone that May is Vasculitis Awareness Month (VAM). Vasculitis UK are coming up with a VAM 2015 campaign and have asked their members to send their pictures to create some new material for use on social media during the month.

To raise awareness of Vasculitis in May, two members have organised the Thames Riverside Walk, which will take place on Saturday 16th May.

Vasculitis UK also holds its AGM during May. This year’s speaker is Dr Peter Lanyon Consultant Rheumatologist from Nottingham University. Dr Lanyon is the Chair of the NHS England Clinical Reference Group for Specialised Rheumatology. Along with DR Fiona Pearce Specialist Registrar for East Midlands Deanery, they will be talking about – Vasculitis – how can we try and improve patient care?
